The event, “A Journey with Mercy Ships,” will take place Sunday, Oct. 23, beginning at 11:30 a.m., at the Orinda Community Church, 10 Irwin Way.
John Creech, who has been sailing on Mercy Ships as a volunteer since 2002, will be presenting a slideshow and opening up a discussion on his most recent Mercy Ships tour to Sierra Leone in Africa.
Mercy Ships are ships that serve as fully-operating hospitals and travel to third-world nations around the globe, helping to heal those who have no other options for care.
